    Giffen and Kolins (with J.M. DeMatteis added in for good measure) deliver such a wild mix of comedy and action, and utilize a wide ranging cast of DC characters, its hard not to love it. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin May 1, 2017

    Up until now, the Rebirth of Blue Beetle hasn't been a must-read series when compared with the higher profile DC titles. While this series still has some way to go to reach those levels, Blue Beetle #8 offers genuine hope for readers and fans. Read Full Review

    This title just keeps getting better and better. I was never terribly excited about Jaime's adventures in the pre-Flashpoint and New 52 runs of Blue Beetle, but the Rebirth run is one of my favourite titles. Read Full Review

    We have come a long way with Jaime's journey in this new iteration. I'm fucking with the art from Kolins, my only complaint for this issue is when Jaime starts narrating what's happening aloud. The narration is better suited for thought captions and it comes across rather weird that we are getting narration of what's happening instead of a dialogue of reaction to it. Read Full Review

    While we lose some great interactions and possible stories from a character introduction here because of the New 52 Blue Beetle being completely omitted from continuity, I have to say that I really enjoyed this issue more than I have previous one now that J.M. DeMatteis is on script duty.  The art was decent as always and we're left with a cliffhanger that just screams fun and gets me to want to see more of this arc. Read Full Review
